Ashland Composite Polymers is increasing the price of its epoxy vinyl ester resins (Derakane, Derakane Momentum and Hetron Products) sold in Europe, the Middle East and Africa by 150 euros per metric ton. This price increase will be effective April 1, 2005, and it is driven by a continuing and relentless escalation of raw material and energy costs.

Reichhold have increased prices by $ 0.04 per pound on all unsaturated polyester resins sold in the United States and Canada, effective for orders shipped on or after March 21.
“Key unsaturated polyester raw materials continue to increase following the rapid and dramatic changes we saw in 2004,” said Bill Schramm, North American business director for Reichhold’s composites business.

“The industry supply of maleic anhydride remains tight due to a recent shutdown of one supplier,” he explained. “Furthermore, benzene prices have continued to escalate, with a direct effect on the price of styrene, a key unsaturated polyester raw material. “In addition to our raw material costs, continued high costs for natural gas are driving producers’ manufacturing costs up.”
